OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to evaluate the utility of the emergency department observation unit (EDOU) for neurologically intact children with closed head injuries (CHIs) and computed tomography (CT) abnormalities. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study of children aged 0 to 18 years with acute CHI, abnormal head CT, and a Glasgow Coma Scales score of 14 or higher admitted to the EDOU of a tertiary care children's hospital from 2007 to 2010. Children with multisystem trauma, nonaccidental trauma, and previous neurosurgical or coagulopathic conditions were excluded...

Chronic subdural hematomas (CSDHs) and its management comprise a majority work in a neurosurgical specialty. The effectiveness of surgery is beyond doubt and sometimes even lifesaving in severe cases. However, the straightforward surgery is sometimes complicated by the associated comorbidities of the patient. Comorbidities in the form of coagulopathies secondary to chronic liver diseases, drugs (warfarin, ecosprin, clopidogrel), thrombocytopenia secondary to systemic illness are always a challenge to deal with in patients with CSDH...

Traumatic aneurysm rupture following a closed head injury is rare. The rupture of a cavernous internal carotid artery (ICA) aneurysm following a head injury presenting as a tentorial subdural hematoma has not been reported in the literature. We discuss a 50-year-old woman with a closed head injury with her initial computed tomography scan showing a tentorial subdural hematoma. Further investigations revealed the presence of a ruptured cavernous ICA aneurysm. We also conducted a literature review of posttraumatic ICA aneurysmal rupture...

BACKGROUND: Subacute subdural hematoma (SASDH) is an entity which is yet to capture the popular imagination among the neurosurgeons. Its management is often equated clinically to that of the chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH). However, their neurological deterioration is usually rapid, which seems to align them with acute subdural hematoma (ASDH). We proceed for their epidemiological evaluation. The advantages of a novel "double barrel technique (DbT)" over the conventional burrhole drainage are also presented...

OBJECTIVE: Chronic subdural hematomas (CSDHs) are often found in neurosurgery, and display a recurrence rate of up to 37%. This study aimed to determine potential risk factors contributing to unilateral CSDH recurrence, and evaluate the role of postoperative management with dexamethasone (DX) in reducing recurrence. METHODS: Between January 2010 and May 2015, a total of 242 consecutive patients with CSDH treated with burr-hole trephination were included in this study...

Cortical herniation through subdural membrane formation is a rare complication of chronic subdural fluid collections and may occur following subdural shunting. The authors present a unique case of progressive cortical herniation through a compressive subdural membrane that occurred concomitant with a functioning subdural-peritoneal shunt.

A 76-year-old man with aplastic anemia presented with recurrent acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with heart failure. After the initial appearance of AMI approximately 2 months earlier, he had received conservative treatment/transfusion alone because of severe thrombocytopenia and anemia (platelet 11 × 10(3)/μL, hemoglobin 6.4 g/dL). Refractory heart failure persisted despite repeated conservative treatment/transfusion for the second AMI, and therefore, we performed transradial coronary angiography and left main crossover stenting with a bare metal stent...

OBJECTIVE: Minor head trauma is common in children. Though most cases are nonsignificant, minor head trauma can lead to the deterioration of intracranial injuries, which is preventable. The aim of this study was to identify clinical predictors of intracranial injuries in infants with minor head trauma. METHODS: We retrospectively enrolled infants under 11 months with minor head trauma between 2006 and 2013. The following data were recorded: age, sex, cause of trauma, fall height, vomiting, bad temper, size and location of scalp hematoma, fracture, and intracranial injuries on CT...

BACKGROUND: The causes of post-traumatic acute kidney injury (AKI) are multifactorial, and shock associated with major trauma has been proposed to result in inadequate renal perfusion and subsequent AKI in trauma patients. This study aimed to investigate the true incidence and clinical presentation of post-traumatic AKI in hospitalized adult patients and its association with shock at a Level I trauma center. METHODS: Detailed data of 78 trauma patients with AKI and 14,504 patients without AKI between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2014 were retrieved from the Trauma Registry System...

Compared to conventional therapy, several studies with prothrombin complex concentrate (PCC) have recently demonstrated its superior efficacy in rapidly replacing vitamin K-dependent factors for patients with life-threatening hemorrhage. We present a novel use of PCC in a patient with intracranial hypotension, who had received warfarin for treatment of cortical vein thrombosis. However, after anticoagulation, she proceeded to develop bilateral subdural hematomas with descent of cerebellar tonsils. Given the possibility of an occult dural puncture during labor analgesia, an epidural blood patch was performed after administration of PCC and normalization of coagulation parameters, with prompt improvement of the patient's headache...

BACKGROUND: Currently, the platelet count threshold for platelet transfusion that is commonly used prior to surgical evacuation of CSDH is 100,000 per microliter. This study is done to show the outcome of the surgical evacuation of CSDH in patients with intractable thrombocytopenia (platelet count which did not reach 100,000 per microliter after platelet transfusions). MATERIAL AND METHODS: This study retrospectively reviewed the admitted patients with symptomatic CSDH and intractable thrombocytopenia in our university hospitals from January 2007 to January 2016...

Acute subdural hematoma is a serious complication following traumatic brain injury. Large volume hematomas or those with underlying brain injury can cause mass effect, midline shift, and eventually herniation of the brain. Acute subdural hematomas in the young are associated with high-energy trauma and often have underlying contusions, while acute subdural hematomas in the elderly are associated with minor trauma and an absence of underlying contusions, even though the elderly are more likely to be on anticoagulants or anti-platelet therapy...

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether baseline cerebral atrophy can predict the rate of future chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) after head trauma and compare indirect markers of brain atrophy with volumetric analysis of computed tomography (CT). METHODS: Single institution case-control study involving 1,476 patients who visited our hospital after head trauma from January 2009 to December 2014. Forty-one patients with delayed CSDH were identified and age, gender matched 41 patients were selected as control group...

OBJECTIVE: Although twist-drill craniostomy (TDC) has a number of procedural advantages and an equivalent outcome compared to burr hole craniostomy (BHC) for the treatment of chronic subdural hematomas (CSDHs), the latter technique remains the preferred method. We analyzed symptomatic CSDHs in whom TDC at the pre-coronal suture entry point (PCSEP) was the primary method for hematoma drainage and BHC on the parietal was the secondary option. METHODS: CSDHs in 86 consecutive patients were included...

OBJECTIVE: A subdural drain using urokinase after a burr hole hematoma evacuation was performed for subacute subdural hematoma (SASDH), and its effectiveness and safety in elderly patients were evaluated. METHODS: Between January 2013 and May 2015, subdural drains using urokinase after burr hole hematoma evacuation were performed in 19 elderly patients. The inclusion criteria were as follows: 1) a subdural hematoma occurring between 4 and 20 days after injury; 2) worsening neurological symptoms, from mild to moderate or severe, due to injury during the subacute stage; 3) a mix of solid clots (high-density lighter shadow) and fluid hematoma (low-density darker shadow) on the computed tomography (CT) scan; 4) a score of ≥9 on the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) assessed immediately before surgery; and 5) an age of ≥65 years...

OBJECTIVE: Our study examined the prognostic factors involved in the outcome of patients with chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) who had undergone burr hole drainage procedures, and investigated the association between outcome and traumatic head injury. In addition, we explored factors related to recurrence. METHODS: This study enrolled 238 patients with CSDH who had undergone burr hole drainage. Patients with history of head injury were categorized into the head trauma group and were compared with the no head trauma group...
